Uncle Ben’s a fraud!

by Brand Amplification
August 15th, 2018

I do love it when a plan comes together.

I know it’s a tad naughty but I just can’t help myself.

So on Saturday we were all sat at the dinner table.

Yes, that’s right all six of us.

I’d like to say it was civilised, but where Jude is concerned, that is not humanly possibly I’m afraid.

I was busy dishing up when Ruby came in.

“How long’s it going to be Daddy, I’m hungry?”

Then something caught her eye.

“Who’s that Daddy, who’s Uncle Ben?”

Now what would you say at this point?

I know what I’d say, and I did!

“It’s Uncle Ben, who do you think it is?”

“What, our Uncle?” replied Ruby.

Now any self respecting father would give up at this point, but not me.

“Yes of course, have you never heard me talking about Uncle Ben?”

“So how come we have never met him?”

“He lives in Australia” said I

“Well how come we’ve never phoned him?”

“Oh, he lives in the outback and has no phone.”

It’s at this point Ruby looked at me in a very inquisitive way.

I’m getting flash backs to the Ben Sherman episode a few months back.

And with that inquisitive look, came a smirk from me.

I couldn’t keep it in any longer.

Which is when, she said.

“No he’s not Daddy, you numpty”

It’s a fair cop guv.

There are only so many times you can cry wolf, and this was one step too far.

So Uncle Ben, he’s the main man where rice is concerned.

His face is soooo recognisable and it’s been used since 1943.

If someone was to show you a photo of his face, without the text, would you remember who he was?

It’s the same with your logo.

Who is remembering that?

Are your potential clients going to recognise and remember who you are?

If not, contact us to find out how we can help.

Right, I’m off to hone my porky pie telling skills.

That’s two out of the four which are privy to my shenanigans.

I must move my devious games onto Layla next.

She’s easy pickings!
